“I make my Jura wine like I make the ones from Burgundy.”
This is Florent Rouve’s philosophy at Domaine Rijckaert in the Jura, and tasting today’s wine will transport you 50 miles west into the heartland of CÃ´te de Beaune. Actually, the vineyard sites sourced for today’s bottling are directly in line with those of Puligny and Chassagneâ€”albeit at higher elevations’ which further adds to its palatal illusion.
This Chardonnay is full bodied with lots of tropical fruit and white peach on the palate.
The oak is subtle and very well integrated, One of my favourite Chardonnays and offers serious value for money.
